32814 West Riding - Northern Half, John Cary 1787. Price: 49.00

PART OF THE WEST RIDING YORKSHIRE

The FIRST EDITION of this detailed engraved map of the northern half of the Riding. Title panel and compass rose combined. Cary's imprint beneath dated 1787. 10 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches. Original outline hand colouring with some additional more modern hand colouring. The map is in an old ivory tint sunk mount with wash and line border. The mount is probably good enough to continue using when framing. The mount however, does obscure the publisher’s imprint dated 1787 beneath the map. The map is mid toned all over caused by it getting too much light. This is revealed when you look at the portions of the map hidden under the mount. Good condition.
